Backcountry Access Float 32 Airbag

No matter how carefully you plan and study, backcountry skiing and snowboarding will always carry the risk of getting caught in an avalanche. However, wearing an airbag can double your chances of survival should you get caught in a slide. The Backcountry Access Float 32 Airbag features the Float system plus enough space to stash everything you need for all-day tours and highly technical approaches. The Float airbag system is light, affordable, and easy to use, and most importantly, it could save your life. It uses a compressed air cylinder to almost instantly inflate a 150-liter airbag that helps keep you at or near the surface of a slide in order to minimize evacuation time and blunt force trauma from debris and hidden obstacles. Backcountry Access also has the world's most extensive network of cylinder refill and exchange centers, making it easier for you to get a new compressed air cylinder after you have to deploy your airbag. In addition to having enough space for avalanche safety essentials, it also fits your climbing skins, extra layers, snacks, a hydration reservoir, and more. Dedicated probe and shovel sleeves make your avalanche rescue tools easily accessible so you don't waste a second if you have to dig out a partner. Compression straps help you minimize bulk for better stability while you ski, and the adjustable waist belt keeps the pack from swinging around and throwing you off balance. The Float 32 even includes a dual ice axe carrying system for the most adventurous backcountry explorers.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
